Meg Urry


Bio:

Meg Urry is Professor (and former Chair) of Physics and Director of the Yale Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics. When not observing black holes and galaxies with the world's best ground-based and space-based telescopes (go Hubble!), or advising and teaching students and postdocs, she works to increase the participation of women and minorities in science. She also pioneered innovative, interactive teaching techniques in intro physics and started the Physics Study Hall (for several years in the Jonathan Edwards dining hall, thanks to the generosity of Master Laurans!). The favorite part of her job is talking to students. meg.urry@yale.edu

Her Yale Summer Session program “Prague Film and Fiction in Kafka’s Spirit” attracts students not only from JE and other Yale residential colleges but also from Yale-NUS (and even Oxford, Harvard, and Brown) and includes an introduction to Holocaust, Prague history and culture, basics of filmmaking and travels across Central Europe (former Austria-Hungary). Dr. von Kunes enjoys talking with students about languages, literature, cultures, creative writing, screenwriting, and current trends in global immigration, which is one of the themes of her novel Among the Sinners. In addition, she has developed a keen interest in Singaporean culture, literature and economy during her teaching at Yale-NUS in 2015, and would enjoy having lunch with students from Singapore and other parts of Asia. karen.vonkunes@yale.edu
